Styles of Beyond/Fort Minor emcee Ryan “Ryu” Maginn officially rings in 2016 with his first solo offering after appearing on Bishop Lamont’s “Un-American” with Apathy.

The veteran Los Angeles rapper will finally release his debut solo album Tanks For The Memories on September 9th following a lengthy, successful run in the underground world with SoB — reuniting with long-time collaborator/producer Divine Styler for the album’s first single, “Been Doin This.”

Described as a “take on the Gangstarr song “BYS””, “Been Doin This” serves as “a brief look at my past and present, as well as a tribute to my good friend Redeem, who recently passed away. He was the first one to believe and me as a rapper and always wanted me to do a solo record. He was also a huge fan of DJ. Premier, who produced the original song.”
